GENERAL INTEREST 


San Camilo, 1936: 
The Eve, Feast, 
and Octave of St. 
Camillus of the Year 
1936 in Madrid 

Camilo Jose Cela 
Translated by John H. R. Polt 


Widely regarded as one of the 
best works by the winner of the 
1989 Nobel Prize for Literature, 
San Camilo, ip ^6 appears here 
for the first time in English 
translation. One of Spain’s most 
popular writers, Camilo Jose 
Cela is recognized for his experi¬ 
ments with language and with 
difficult subject matter. In San 
Camilo, ip^ 6 , first published in 
1969, these concerns converge in 
a fascinating narrative that is as 
challenging as it is rewarding, as 
troubling as it is compelling. 

A story of history as it happens, 
by turns confusing and star¬ 
tlingly clear, echoing with news 
and rumors, defined by grand 
gestures and intimate pauses, the 
novel leads the reader into the 
ordinary life of extraordinary 
times. Beginning on the eve of 
the Spanish Civil War, San 
Camilo, ipj 6 follows a 
twenty-year-old student’s at¬ 
tempts to sort out his private 
affairs (sex, money, career) in the 
midst of the turmoil overtaking 
his country. In vivid and richly 
textured prose that distinguishes 
Cela’s work, the emotional 
reality of civil war takes on a 
vibrant immediacy that is hu¬ 
morous, harsh, tender, and 
ultimately transforming as a 
young man tries to come to 
terms with the historical mo¬ 
ment he inhabits—and hopes to 
survive. 

Readers new to Cela will find in 
this novel ample reason for the 
author’s growing reputation 
among audiences worldwide. 



gies at the age when most 
gentlemen tend their gardens. 
Camilo Jose Cela approaches 
dusk with a steadfast gaze that 
only a few writers of genius can 
turn upon the face of chaos.” 

—Eduardo Gonzalez, The Nobel 
Prize Annual ipSp 



Camilo Jose Cela, born in Spain 
in 1916, is the author of more 
than fifteen books, including the 
novels The Family of Pascual 
Duarte, The Hive, Mrs. Caldwell 
Speaks to Her Son, and a travel 
narrative. Journey to the Alcarria, 
all of which have been published 
in English translation. In 1987 
Cela was awarded the Prince of 
Asturias Prize for Literature. In 
1989 he received the Nobel Prize 
for Literature. 


John H. R. Polt is Professor of 
Spanish at the University of 
California, Berkeley. He has 
published numerous books, 
articles, and translations.

About Camilo Jose Cela 

“Cela continues to anticipate 
and outlast his peers. Few con¬ 
temporary writers can match his 
range, verbal richness, and pu¬ 
rity of means. Few have given 
better evidence of dwelling in 
awfulness while caressing 
beauty. No other artist—except 
Picasso—has tapped such ener¬ 


Line of Light 
and Shadow: 

The Drawings of 
Federico Garcia 
Lorca 

Mario Hernandez 
Translated by Christopher 
Maurer 

Foreword by Michael 
Mezzatesta 


Federico Garcia Lorca 
(1898-1936), Spain’s greatest 
modern poet and playwright, 
produced a body of visual art 
that has gone largely unnoticed. 
Lorca’s drawings—executed on 
inexpensive paper in pencil, ink, 
crayon, pastel, and gouache— 
span his career. Assimilating 
themes and motifs from Dali, 
Miro, Picabia, and Picasso, 
Lorca’s graphic works include 
haunting self- portraits, abstract 
sketches, still lifes, whimsical 
doodles, and drawings of sailors, 
Andalusian gypsies, and Spanish 
ladies. 

Lavishly illustrated. Line of Light 
and Shadow provides an exhaus¬ 
tive catalog of Lorca’s extant 
drawings. In a series of essays, 
Mario Hernandez, Spain’s fore¬ 
most authority on Lorca, com¬ 
ments on different themes in the 
drawings, showing how they 
serve as an indispensable aid to 
the interpretation of Lorca’s 
lyrical world, from Songs to 
Gypsy Ballads to Poet in New 
York. Many of these sketches 
were made in copies of his books 
dedicated to friends in Spain, 
New York, and Latin America, 
and some of them illustrate 
particular texts. 

Few of these drawings were 
published in Lorca’s lifetime (he 
was assassinated by a fascist

Storming the Reality 
Studio: A Casebook 
of Cyberpunk 
and Postmodern 
Science Fiction 

Larry McCafFery, editor 


The term “cyberpunk” entered 
the literary landscape in 1984 to 
describe William Gibson’s 
pathbreaking novel Neuro- 
mancer. Cyberpunks are now 
among the shock troops of 
postmodernism, Larry 
McCaffery argues in Storming 
the Reality Studio, marshalling 
the resources of a fragmentary 
culture to create a startling new 
form. Artificial intelligence, 
genetic engineering, multina¬ 
tional machinations, frenetic 
bursts of prose, collisions of 
style, celebrations of texture: 
although emerging largely from 
science fiction, these features of 
cyberpunk writing are, as this 
volume makes clear, integrally 
related to the aims and innova¬ 
tions of the literary avant-garde. 

By bringing together original 
fiction by well-known contem¬ 
porary writers (William 
Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, 
Don DeLillo, Kathy Acker, J. G. 
Ballard, Samuel R. Delany), 
critical commentary by some of 
the major theorists of 
postmodern art and culture 
(Jacques Derrida, Fredric 
Jameson, Timothy Leary, Jean- 
Fran^ois Lyotard), and work by 
major practitioners of 
cyberpunk (William Gibson, 
Rudy Rucker, John Shirley, Pat 
Cadigan, Bruce Sterling), Storm¬ 
ing the Reality Studio reveals a 
fa.scinating ongoing dialog in 
contemporary culture. 

What emerges most strikingly 
from the colloquy is a shared 
preoccupation with the force of 


Selected contributors 



technology in shaping modern 
life. It is precisely this concern, 
according to McCaffery, that has 
put science fiction, typically the 
province of technological art, at 
the forefront of creative explora¬ 
tions of our unique age. 

A rich opportunity for reading 
across genres, this anthology 
offers a new perspective on the 
evolution of postmodern culture 
and ultimately shows how 
deeply technological develop¬ 
ments have influenced our 
vision and our art. 

Larry McCaflFery, Professor of 
English at San Diego State 
University, is the author of 


numerous books including The 
Metafictional Muse: The Works 
of Robert Coover, Donald 
Barthelme, and William H. Gass

The Tail of the 
Dragon: New 
Dance, 1976-1982 

Marcia B. Siegel 
Photographs by 
Nathaniel Tileston 


In The Tail of the Dragon, 

Marcia B. Siegel and Nathaniel 
Tileston track the evolution of 
new dance in New York during 
the rich and crucial transitional 
period from the mid-1970s to 
the early 1980s. Siegel, one of 
America’s most important dance 
critics, and Tileston, an accom¬ 
plished dance photographer, 
focus on the choreographers 
who were propelled into rebel¬ 
lion against conventional mod¬ 
ern dance by the Judson Dance 
Theater and other counter- 
cultural movements born of 
the 1960s. 

This collection of Siegel’s writ¬ 
ing, compiled from reviews in 
Soho Weekly News and New York 
Magazine, as well as from longer 
essays and notebook pieces, 
forms an insightful commen¬ 
tary—occasionally wry, always 
perceptive—on the absorption 
of a radical art form by the 
mainstream. From minimalism, 
improvisation, street dancing, 
body awareness, and “poor 
theater” experimental strategies, 
these young rebels identified and 
adopted personal styles of move¬ 
ment and dancemaking; from 
that, they turned gradually to 
tamer, more accessible work, 
marked by virtuosic dancing, 
proscenium-ready repertoires, 
and touring companies. 


Included in this story are the 
principal players in the 
“postmodernist” dance move¬ 
ment—Merce Cunningham, 
Twyla Tharp, Trisha Brown, 
David Gordon—now 
well known internationally as 
leaders of dance in the 1990s. 
Siegel also looks at anists who 
worked steadily but less visibly, 
influential ones who drifted out 
of dance, and unknowns who 
have gained prominence. The 
dances described here are formal 
and outlandish, scruffy and 
beautiful, endearingly fallible 
and icily perfect. 

In rightfully celebrating the 
importance of dances long 
forgotten. The Tail of the Dragon 
produces a vibrant portrait of a 
generation of dance. 

Marcia B. Siegel teaches in the 
Department of Performance 
Studies at the Tisch School of 
the Arts, New York University. 
She is the author of Days on 
Earth: The Dance of Doris 
Humphrey, The Shapes of 
Change: Images of American 
Dance, and two other books of 
dance reviews. Watching the 
Dance Go By and At the Vanish¬ 
ing Point: A Critic Looks at 
Dance. She has been a regular 
contributor to the Christian 
Science Monitor, Hudson Review, 
and The New York Press. From 
1974 to 1982 she was dance critic 
for the Soho Weekly News. 

Nathaniel Tileston’s dance 
photographs from the period 
covered by The Tail of the 
Dragon have been featured in 
exhibitions in the United States 
and London. Tileston lives in 
Nova Scotia, where he makes 
photographs and is active on the 
board of regional theater.

The World and 
the Bo Tree 

Helen Bevington 


“Each time I leave home I seem 
to go in search of something— 
call it a bo tree, or Shangri-La, 
or paradise—which is only 
another name for peace itself 
and these days decidedly a fool’s 
errand.” 

So writes Helen Bevington in 
The World and the Bo Tree, a 
book that describes her travels 
lightly taken amid the turbu¬ 
lence of the 1980s. The “world” 
of the title is the one everybody 
knows, a fairly troubled, even 
threatening place to inhabit 
these days. The bo tree, which 
has flourished for centuries in 
India and Asia, is itself a 
meaningful symbol of 
peace, since under it the ' ^ 
Buddha sat when he 
gained enlight¬ 
enment 


and sought thereafter to share it 
with the world. 

The book fashions a delightful 
fabric, a weave of exotic journeys 
and chaotic recent history. 

While we travel with Bevington 
to and from various destinations 
in Europe, Asia, South America, 
Africa, China, and elsewhere, we 
are conscious of the look of the 
world at home in striking con¬ 
trast to the serenity occasionally 
glimpsed in distant places. At 
home she reminds us of such 
global disturbances as the demise 
of the Equal Rights Amend¬ 
ment, the Chernobyl nuclear 
disaster, the explosion of the 
space shuttle Challenger, and the 
possible destruction of the 
planet. 


Abroad, on some quest of their 
own, we may encounter such 
fascinating passersby as Mark 
Twain in Bangkok, Lord Byron 
in Italy, Goethe in Sicily, Marco 
Polo in China, Isak Dinesen in 
Africa, and Gladstone in the 
Blue Grotto of Capri. 

Against the backdrop of the 
world, Bevington discovers 
moments of peace in unexpected 
and unlikely places—visible, she 
says, in Tibet or on the road to 
Mandalay, in the look of the 
midnight sun, or in the silence 
of Africa. Fleeting and elusive 
though these moments are, they 
are real and in themselves 
strangely enlightening. 

Helen Bevington is the author 
of many books of 


biography, poetry, and travel. 
Charley Smith ’$ Girl, a 
runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize 
in 1965, is a memoir of her fa¬ 
ther. Along Came the Witch and 
The Journey is Everything (Duke, 
1983) are highly acclaimed reflec¬ 
tions on the 1960s and 1970s. 

She writes regularly for the New 
York Times Book Review, has 
published light verse in the New 
Yorker, and has contributed to 
the Atlantic Monthly and Ameri¬ 
can Scholar, among other peri¬ 
odicals. For many years she 
taught at Duke University and is 
now Professor Emeritus of 
English at Duke.

LIVING WITH THE SHORE 


Living 

w\th the Shore 

A Series Edited by 
Orrin H. Pilkey, Jr., and 
William J. Neal, 
Sponsored by the National 
Audubon Society 


About the series 

“America’s foremost philosopher 
of the beaches, the sea bottoms 
and the coastal sands [Orrin 
Pilkey] ... is challenging some 
long-held notions about the 
ways in which people use and 
maintain beaches. A decade ago, 
when he began warning of the 
dangers of‘beach degradation,’ 
he found little public support. 
Today, as concern for our shore 
environment grows, people are 
listening.”—Barnard L. Collier, 
The New York Times Magazine 

“Duke University Press has 
published a series. Living with 
the Shore, to educate the deter¬ 
mined shore dweller. Maps show 
what is happening on each 
stretch of beach, in enough 
detail to cover specific home- 
sites. The books offer guidelines 
for buying and building at the 
shore. They list federal, state, 
and local agencies that are in¬ 
volved in coastal development, 
as well as give up-to-date infor¬ 
mation on laws that regulate 
land use.”—Kelly Walker, 

Forbes 


A Moveable Shore: 
The Fate of the 
Connecticut Coast 

Peter C. Patton and 
James M. Kent 

The Connecticut shoreline is 
made up of varying land¬ 
scapes—the sandy coastline at 
Madison, the rocky shore at 
Branford, the replenished beach 
at Greenwich, and the erosion at 
Old Saybrook. A Moveable 
Shore, the latest volume in the 
Living with the Shore series, is a 
general users’ guide to the Con¬ 
necticut shore. In a town- 
by-town journey down the 
254-mile Connecticut coastline, 
Peter C. Patton and James M. 
Kent explore in detail the history 
of specific sites, the climatic and 
geological forces that shape the 
shore, and regulations regarding 
land-use development. In addi¬ 
tion, they provide a guide to 
coastal field trips. 

Beginning with the hurricane of 
1938, the biggest natural disaster 
to strike Connecticut since its 
settlement by Europeans, the 
authors demonstrate the con¬ 
tinuing pattern of development 
of coastal land prone to flooding 
and high winds. Although the 
Connecticut coast faces Long 
Island and Block Island sounds, 
it is subject to the same natural 
hazards, land-use risks, and 
regulations as open ocean shore¬ 
lines. Global climatic events— 
glaciation, global warming, and 
rising sea levels—influence the 
shape and composition of the 
Connecticut shoreline, as do 
small-scale forces such as wind, 
waves, and tides. 

Patton and Kent seek to instill a 
respect for the force of natural 
events and provide a guide for 
lessening the dangers of con¬ 
struction and development. A 
practical question-and-answer 


chapter explains what 
homeowners need to know to 
meet land-use regulations along 
the coast. In a state where the 
entire population lives within 
too miles of the coast, this im¬ 
portant new book will serve as a 
citizens’ guide to living with the 
Connecticut shore and will be of 
interest to coastal residents, 
developers, geologists, 
policymakers, and vacationers. 

Peter C. Patton is Professor of 
Earth and Environmental Sci¬ 
ences at Wesleyan University. 
James M. Kent is Editor of 
Oilfield Review.

The Politics of 
Liberal Education 

Darryl J. Gless and 
Barbara Herrnstein Smith, 
editors 

Controversy over what role “the 
great books” should play in 
college curricula and questions 
about who defines “the literary 
canon” are at the forefront of 
debates in higher education. The 
Politics of Liberal Education 
enters this discussion with a 
sophisticated defense of educa¬ 
tional reform in response to 
attacks by academic traditional¬ 
ists. The authors here—them¬ 
selves distinguished scholars and 
educators—share the belief that 
American schools, colleges, and 
universities can do a far better 
job of educating the nation’s 
increasingly diverse population 
and that the liberal arts must 
play a central role in providing 
students with the resources they 
need to meet the challenges of a 
rapidly changing world. 

Within this area of consensus, 
however, the contributors dis¬ 
play a wide range of approaches, 
illuminating the issues from the 
perspectives of their particular 
disciplines—classics, education, 
English, history, and philoso¬ 
phy, among others—and their 
individual experiences as teach¬ 
ers. Among the topics they 
discuss are canon-formation in 
the ancient world, the idea of a 
“common culture,” and the 
educational implications of such 
social movements as feminism. 


technological changes including 
computers and television, and 
intellectual developments such 
as “theory.” Readers interested 
in the current controversies over 
American education will find 
this volume an informed alter¬ 
native to sensationalized treat¬ 
ments of these issues.

Figures 
of Resistance: 
Language, Poetry, 
and Narrating in 
The To/e of Genji and 
Other Mid-Heian 
Texts 

H. Richard Okada 

In this revisionist study of texts 
from the mid-Heian period in 
Japan, H. Richard Okada offers 
new readings of three well- 
known tales: The Tale of the 
Bamboo-cutter, The Taleofise, 
and The Tale of Genji. Okada 
contends that the cultural and 
gendered significance of these 
works has been distorted by 
previous commentaries and 
translations belonging to the 
larger patriarchal and colonialist 
discourse of Western civiliza¬ 
tion. He goes on to suggest that 
this universalist discourse, which 
silences the feminine aspects of 
these texts and subsumes their 
writing in misapplied Western 
canonical literary terms, is sanc¬ 
tioned and maintained by the 
discipline of Japanese literature. 

Okada develops a highly original 
and sophisticated reading strat¬ 
egy that demonstrates how 
readers might understand texts 
belonging to a different time and 
place without being complicit in 
their assimilation to categories 
derived from Western literary 
traditions. The author’s reading 
strategy is based on the texts’ 
own resistance to modes of 
analysis that employ such West¬ 
ern canonical terms as novel, 
lyric, and third- person narra¬ 
tive. Emphasis is also given to 
the distinctive cultural circles, as 
well as socio-political and genea¬ 
logical circumstances that sur¬ 
rounded the emergence of the 
texts.

Indispensable reading for spe¬ 
cialists in literature, cultural 
studies, and Japanese literature 
and history. Figures of Resistance 
will also appeal to general read¬ 
ers interested in the problems 
and complexities of studying 
another culture.

The Story of Stone: 
Intertextuality, 
Ancient Chinese 
Stone Lore, and the 
Stone Symbolism 
in Dream of the Red 
Chamber, Water 
Margin, and The 
Journey to the West 

Jing Wang 


In this pathbreaking study of 
three of the most familiar texts 
in the Chinese tradition—all 
concerning stones endowed with 
magical properties—^JingWang 
develops a monumental recon¬ 
struction of ancient Chinese 
stone lore. Wang’s thorough and 
I systematic comparison of these 

classic works illuminates the 
various tellings of the stone story 
and provides new insight into 
major topics in traditional Chi¬ 
nese literatute. 

Bringing together Chinese 
myth, religion, folklore, art, and 
literature, this book is the first in 



any language to amass the 
sources of stone myth and stone 
lore in Chinese culture. Uniting 
classical Chinese studies with 
contemporary Western theoreti¬ 
cal concerns, Wang examines 
these stone narratives by analyz¬ 
ing intertextuality within Chi¬ 
nese traditions. She offers reve¬ 
latory interpretations to long¬ 
standing critical issues, such as 
the patadoxical character of the 
monkey in The Journey to the 
West, the circularity of narrative 
logic in Dream of the Red Cham¬ 
ber, and the structural necessity 
of the stone tablet in Water 
Margin. 

By both challenging and incor¬ 
porating traditional sinological 
scholarship, Wang’s The Story of 
Stone reveals the ideological 
ramifications of these three 
literary works on Chinese cul¬ 
tural history and makes the past 
relevant to contemporary intel¬ 
lectual discourse. Specialists in 
Chinese literature and culture. 


comparative literature, literary 
theory, and religious studies will 
find much of interest in this 
outstanding work, which is sure 
to become a standatd reference 
on the subject.

of Chinese Language and Litera¬ 
ture at Duke University.

The Dialectics of Our 
America: Genealogy, 
Cultural Critique, 
and Literary History 

Jose David Saldivar 

Joining the current debates in 
American literary history, Jose 
David Saldivar offers a challeng¬ 
ing new perspective on what 
constitutes not only the canon in 
American literature, but also the 
notion of America itself His aim 
is the articulation of a fresh, 
transgeographical conception of 
American culture, one more 
responsive to the geographical 
ties and political crosscurrents of 
the hemisphere than to narrow 
national ideologies. 

Saldivar pursues this goal 
through an array of oppositional 
critical and creative practices. 

He analyzes a range of North 
American writers of color 
(Rolando Hinojosa, Gloria 
Anzaldiia, Arturo Islas, Ntozake 
Shange, and others) and Latin 
American authors (Jose Marti, 
Roberto Fernandez Retamar, 
Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and 
others), whose work forms a 
radical critique of the dominant 
culture, its politics, and its re¬ 
strictive modes of expression. By 
doing so, Saldivar opens the 
traditional American canon to a 
dialog with other voices, not just 
the voices of national minorities, 
but those of regional cultures 
different from the prevalent 
anglocentric model. 

The Dialectics of Our America, in 
its project to expand the “canon” 
and define a pan-American 
literary tradition, will make a 
critical difference in ongoing 
attempts to reconceptualize 
American literary history. 


Jose David Saldivar is Associate 
Professor of Literature and 
Cultural Studies at the Univer¬ 
sity of California at Santa Cruz. 
He is the coeditor of Criticism in 
the Borderlands: Studies in 
Chicano Literature, Culture, and 
Ideology, also published by Duke

AMERICAN LITERATURE 


Donald Barthelme: 
An Exhibition 

Jerome KJinkowitz 


Satire or Evasion? 
Black Perspectives 
on Huckleberry Finn 


Donald Barthelme (1931-1989) is 
regarded as one of the most 
imitated and influential Ameri¬ 
can fiction writers since the early 
1960s. In Donald Barthelme: An 
Exhibition, ]emme. Klinkowitz 
presents both an appreciation 
and a comprehensive examina¬ 
tion of the life work of this 
pathbreaking contemporary 
writer. A blend of close reading, 
biography, and theory, this 
retrospective— informed by 
Klinkowitz’s expert command of 
postmodern American fiction— 
contributes significantly to a 
new understanding of 
Barthelme’s work. 

Klinkowitz argues that the 
central piece in the Barthelme 
canon, and the key to his artistic 
method, is his widely acknowl¬ 
edged masterpiece. The Dead 
Father. In turning to this pivotal 
work, as well as to Barthelme’s 
short stories and other novels, 
Klinkowitz explores the way in 
which Barthelme reinvented the 
tools of narration, characteriza¬ 
tion, and thematics at a time 
when fictive techniques were 
largely believed to be exhausted. 

Klinkowitz, who was one of the 
first scholars to study 
Barthelme’s work and became its 
definitive bibliographer, situates 
Barthelme’s life and work within 
a broad spectrum of influences 
and affinities. A consideration of 
developments in painting and 
sculpture, for example, as well as 
those of contemporaneous 
fiction, contribute to 
Klinkowitz’s analysis. This 
astute reading will provide great 
insight for readers, writers, and 
critics of contemporary Ameri¬ 



can fiction seeking explanations 
and justifications for Barthel¬ 
me’s critical importance in the 
literature of our times. 

Jerome Klinkowitz, Professor of 
English and a University Distin¬ 
guished Scholar at the Univer¬ 
sity of Northern Iowa, is the 
author of more than twenty 
books, including Donald 
Barthelme: A Comprehensive 
Bibliography.

Though one of America’s best 
known and loved novels, Mark 
Twain’s Adventures of Huckle¬ 
berry Finn has often been the 
object of fierce controversy 
because of its racist language and 
reliance on racial stereotypes. 
This collection of fifteen essays 
by prominent African American 
scholars and critics examines the 
novel’s racist elements and 
assesses the degree to which 
Twain’s ironies succeed or fail to 
turn those elements into a satiri¬ 
cal attack on racism. 

Ranging from the laudatory to 
the openly hostile, these essays 
include personal impressions of 
Huckleberry Finn, descriptions of 
classroom experience with the 
book, evaluations of its ironic 
and allegorical aspects, explora¬ 
tions of its nineteenth-century 
context, and appraisal of its 
effects on twentieth-century 
African American writers. 

Among the issues the authors 
contend with are Twain’s perva¬ 
sive use of the word “nigger,” his 
portrayal of the slave Jim accord¬ 
ing to the conventions of the 
minstrel show “darky,” and the 
thematic chaos created by the 
“evasion” depicted in the novel’s 
final chapters. 

Sure to provoke thought and stir 
debate. Satire or Evasion? pro¬ 
vides a variety of new perspec¬ 
tives on one of this country’s 
most troubling classics.

AMERICAN STUDIES 



False Promises: 

The Shaping of 
American Working 
Class Consciousness 

With a New Introduction and 
Epilogue by the Author 

Stanley Aronowitz 

This classic study of the Ameri¬ 
can working class, originally 
published in 1973, is now back in 
print with a new introduction 
and epilogue by the author. An 
innovative blend of first-person 
experience and original scholar¬ 
ship, Aronowitz traces the his¬ 
torical development of the 
American working class from 
post-Civil War times and shows 
why radical movements have 
failed to overcome the forces 
that tend to divide groups of 
workers from one another. The 
rise of labor unions is analyzed, 
as well as their decline as a force 
for social change. Aronowitz’s 
new introduction situates the 
book in the context of develop¬ 
ments in current scholarship and 
the epilogue discusses the effects 
of recent economic and political 
changes in the American labor 
movement. 

In praise of the original edition: 

“A fascinating work of social 
history, thoughtful, informed 
and most suggestive. Aronowitz 
has succeeded brilliantly in 
evoking the character of modern 
industrial society.”—Noam 
Chomsky 

“Stanley Aronowitz succeeds 
marvelously in breaking the 
ritualized categories of sociolo¬ 
gists in this field and in revealing 
the ideological content and 
function of these categories.” 

—Herbert Marcu.se 


“False Promises is a rich, sugges¬ 
tive, and honest book. . . . [This 
book] stimulates the labor 
historian’s imagination.” 

— Robert H. Journal 

of American History 

“Stanley Aronowitz has written 
what is perhaps one of the most 
challenging works of contempo¬ 
rary social criticism.”—Ronald 
Radosh, The Nation 

“An important new approach to 
the American working class.” 

—Ed Townsend, Christian 
Science Monitor 

Stanley Aronowitz is Professor of 
Sociology at the Graduate Cen¬ 
ter, City University of New 


York. Since False Promises, 
Aronowitz has written numerous 
books, including The Crisis in 
Historical Materialism, Working 
Class Hero, Education Under 
Siege, and Postmodern Education. 
He has also been a factory worker 
and labor union organizer.

Rock & Roll 
and Culture 

Anthony DeCurtis, editor 

Does Bruce Springsteen matter? 
What is the place of rock & roll 
in the classroom? Is “crossover” 
synonymous with racial integra¬ 
tion? Is Madonna a feminist? In 
this volume of essays Anthony 
DeCurtis, Rolling Stone's music 
editor, brings together writers 
from a variety of fields and 
professions to investigate the 
premises, the products, and the 
power of rock & roll. 

Reflections on postmodernity 
run throughout the collection: 
particularly in Mark Bery’s 
interview with Laurie Anderson; 
in an essay on the technology of 
“tracking”; and in a piece on 
rock & roll viewed through the 
lens of contemporary critical 
theory. In “Consuming Elvis,” 
Greil Marcus (author of Lipstick 
Traces) offers a montage of 
quotations and photographs 
concerning the role of fans as 
consumers, and stars as the 
edible goods. Current phenom¬ 
ena including rap music and 
MTV are explored, as well as the 
part played by censorship in the 
birth of rock & roll. This ener¬ 
getic collection will enlighten 
and entertain all those with an 
interest in rock & roll, as well as 
specialists in American studies, 
popular culture, and contempo¬ 
rary music historians.

ART HISTORY 


Andrea del Castagno 
and H is Patrons 

John R. Spencer 

Most studies of Renaissance pa¬ 
tronage in the arts deal with a 
particular patron and the artists 
who worked for him. John R. 
Spencer reverses this approach by 
focusing on one fifteenth- century 
Florentine artist, Andrea del 
Castagno, and his patrons. Com¬ 
bining social and art history, 
Spencer casts new light on both 
the career of Castagno and on the 
nature of art patronage in the early 
Renaissance. 

Through careful and detailed 
archival research, Spencer creates a 
fascinating portrait of Castagno’s 
patronage as a web, at the center 
of which was Cosimo de’ Medici, 
who constituted the focal point of 
a network of business partner¬ 
ships, real estate transactions, 
loans, and special privileges in 
which the artist’s patrons were 
enmeshed. The author constructs 
partial biographies of unknown 
and lesser-known patrons to show 
the relation of these patrons to 
each other and to the artist, dem¬ 
onstrating the degree to which 
artistic production in Renaissance 
Italy was tied to politics and eco¬ 
nomics. 

Spencer discusses each of 
Castagno’s extant and some of his 
lost paintings, dating the works 
with greater accuracy than ever 
before. His understanding of the 
patrons and of the motivations 
behind the commissions makes it 
possible for Spencer to bring new 
interpretations to many of these 
works. This book offers a deeper 
understanding of a particular 
artist’s life and work while also 
exploring the larger question of 
the unique relationship between 
private patrons and independent 
artists in the Italian Renaissance. 


John R. Spencer is a Professor in 
the Department of Art and Art 
History at Duke University. He 
is translator of Leon B. Alberti’s 
On Painting Sind Antonio A. 
Filarete’s Treatise on Architec¬ 
ture.

Engraven Desire: 
Eros, Image, and 
Text in the French 
Eighteenth Century 

Philip Stewart 


How do literary illustrations 
affect the way we read—or, 
more subtly, what we read? 
Through a critical investigation 
of the the role engraving played 
in eighteenth-century French 
literature, Philip Stewart 
grapples with this question. In 
both its approach and its conclu¬ 
sions, his project marks a pro¬ 
vocative departure from the 
tradition of viewing illustrations 
as merely pictures, rather than as 
texts to be interpreted them¬ 
selves. 

Focusing on the objectification 
of women by the “male gaze,” 
Stewart analyzes the various 
ways in which this masculine 
power is simultaneously repre¬ 
sented and veiled: the fascina¬ 
tion with women playing “male” 
roles, such as soldiers; the pre¬ 
ponderance of voyeuristic im¬ 
ages of the naked female body; 
the transformation of male 
power into hostile forces of 
nature that render women help¬ 
less. Further, Stewart shows how 
“indecent” engravings that 
purported to test the limits of 
eighteenth- century morality 
often merely reinforced prevail¬ 
ing images of women. 



Addressing critical concerns 
about the societal enforcement 
of gender roles in literature 
along with essential questions 
about the function of illustra¬ 
tion, Engraven provides 
surprising insight into the cul¬ 
turally conditioned act of read¬ 
ing. Stewart’s work, itself richly 
illustrated with hundreds of 
arresting reproductions, makes a 
significant contribution to our 
understanding of the interplay 
of art, literature, and sociery. 


Philip Stewart is Professor of 
French at Duke University.

ASIAN STUDIES 



Literary Authority 
and the Modern 
Chinese Writer: 
Ambivalence and 
Autobiography 

Wendy Larson 

Throughout the twentieth 
century, Chinese writers have 
confronted the problem of 
creating a new literary tradition 
that both maintains the cultur¬ 
ally unique aspects of a rich 
heritage and succeeds in pro¬ 
moting a new modernity. In the 
first book-length treatment of 
the topic, Wendy Larson exam¬ 
ines the contradictory forms of 
authority at work in the autobio¬ 
graphical texts of modern Chi¬ 
nese writers and scholars and the 
way these conflicts helped to 
shape and determine the manner 
in which writers viewed them¬ 
selves, their texts, and their 
work. 

Larson focuses on the most 
famous writers associated with 
the May Fourth Movement, a 
group most active in the 1920s 
and 1930S, and their fundamen¬ 
tal ambivalence about writing. 
She analyzes how their writing 
paradoxically characterized 
textual labor as passive, negative, 
and inferior to material labor 
and the more physical political 
work of social progress, and she 
describes the complex ways they 
used textual means to devalue 
literary labor. 

The impact of China’s increas¬ 
ing contact with the West— 
particularly the ways in which 
Western notions of “individual¬ 
ism” and “democracy” influ¬ 
enced Chinese ideologies of self 
and work—is considered. 


Larson also studies the changes 
in China’s social structure, 
notably those linked to the 
abolition in 1905 of the educa¬ 
tional exam system, which sub¬ 
sequently broke the link be¬ 
tween the mastery of certain 
texts and the attainment of 
political power, further denigrat¬ 
ing the cultural role of the 
writer. 

Of exceptional interest to stu¬ 
dents of Chinese literature, 
Chinese history, Asian studies, 
and literary theory. Literary 
Authority and the Modern Chi¬ 
nese \Tr/rer provides a substantial 
contribution to current discus¬ 
sions of ideology and representa¬ 
tion in modern Chinese litera¬ 
ture.

Schools into Fields 
and Factories: 
Anarchists, the 
Guomindang, and 
the National Labor 
University in Shang¬ 
hai, 1927-1932 

Ming K. Chan and Arif Dirlik 

In this collaborative effort by 
two leading scholars of modern 
Chinese history, Ming K. Chan 
and Arif Dirlik investigate how 
the short-lived National Labor 
University in Shanghai was both 
a reflection of the revolutionary 
concerns of its time and a cata¬ 
lyst for future radical experi¬ 
ments in education. Under the 
slogan “Turn schools into fields 
and factories, fields and factories 
into schools,” the university 
attempted to bridge the gap 
between intellectual and manual 
labor that its founders saw as a 
central problem of capitalism, 
and which remains a persistent 
theme in Chinese revolutionary 
thinking. 

During its five years of existence. 
Labor University was the most 
impressive institutional embodi¬ 
ment in twentieth-century 
China of the labor-learning 
ideal, which was introduced by 
anarchists in the first decade of 
the century and came to be 
shared by a diverse group of 
revolutionaries in the 1920s. 

This detailed study places Labor 
University within the broad 
context of anarchist social ideals 
and educational experiments 
that inspired it directly, as well 
as comparable socialist experi¬ 
ments with labor education in 
Europe that Labor University’s 
founders used as models. The 
authors bring to bear the per¬ 


spectives of institutional and 
intellectual history on their ex¬ 
amination of the structure and 
operation of the University, 
presenting new material on its 
faculty, curriculum, physical 
plant, and history. 

Modern Chinese historians, 
educational historians, and those 
interested in the history of anar¬ 
chism will find Schools into Fields 
and Factories an essential docu¬ 
ment.

Muslims in Central 
Asia: Expressions of 
Identity and Change 

Jo-Ann Gross, editor 


Central Asia is distinctive in its 
role as a frontier region in which 
a unique diversity of cultural, 
religious, and political traditions 
exist. This collection of essays by 
expert scholars in a range of 
disciplines focuses on the forma¬ 
tion of ethnic, religious, and 
national identities in Muslim 
societies of Central Asia, thus 
furthering our general under¬ 
standing of the history and 
culture of this significant region. 


This study includes several 
geopolitical regions—Chinese 
Central Asia, Soviet Central 
Asia, Afghanistan, 
and Khurasan—and covers 
historical periods from the 
fifteenth century to the present. 
Drawing on scholarship in 
anthropology, religion, history, 
literature, and language studies, 
Muslims in Central Asia argues 
for an interdisciplinary, inter¬ 
regional dialog in the develop¬ 
ment of new approaches to 
understanding the Muslim 
societies in Central Asia. The 
authors creatively examine the 
social construction of identities 
as expressed through literature, 
Islamic discourse, historical 
texts, ethnic labels, and genealo¬ 
gies, and explore how such 
identities are formed, changed, 
and adopted through time. 


In its interdisciplinary method 
and its focus on the role of Islam 
in Central Asia, this volume 
offers new directions in Central 
Asian studies and will be of 
interest to students and scholars 
alike.

LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES 


The United States in 
Central America, 
1860-1911: Episodes 
of Social Imperialism 
and Imperial Rivalry 
in the World System 

Thomas D. Schoonover 


In a work of unprecedented 
scope, Thomas D. Schoonover 
combines exhaustive 
multicountry archival research 
with a sophisticated theoretical 
framework grounded in world 
systems theory to elucidate the 
relations between the United 
States and Central America in 
the late nineteenth and early 
twentieth centuries. 

Schoonover’s archival research 
in Central America, Europe, and 
the United States encompasses 
public, business, organizational, 
and individual records. In ana¬ 
lyzing this material, Schoonover 
applies a world systems approach 
with that of social imperialism 
and dependency theory to un¬ 
derscore the broad, multistate 
dimension of international 
affairs. In exploring the interna¬ 
tional history of Central 
America, Schoonover describes 
the role of personalities such as 
John C. Fremont, Otto von 
Bismarck, Theodore Roosevelt, 
Manuel Estrada Cabrera, and 
Jose Santos Zelaya; the impact 
of railroad building and canal 
projects; and the role of 
pan-Americanism, nationalism, 
racism, and anti-Americanism. 

This work, in its impressive 
breadth of coverage, will encour¬ 
age historians of Latin America, 
scholars in American foreign 
policy and world history, and 
political scientists concerned 
with international relations to 
reassess the need for 
transcultural approaches to 
historical research.

Millenarian Vision, 
Capitalist Reality: 
Brazil’s Contestado 
Rebellion, 1912-1916 

Todd A. Diacon 


Why did a millenarian move¬ 
ment erupt in the Brazilian 
interior in 1912? Setting out to 
answer this deceptively simple 
question, Todd A. Diacon 
delivers a fascinating account of 
a culture in crisis. 

Combining oral history with 
detailed archival research, 
Millenarian Vision, Capitalist 
Reality depicts a peasant com¬ 
munity whose security in eco¬ 
nomic, social, and religious 
relations was suddenly dis¬ 
rupted by the intrusion of 
international capital. Diacon 
shows how a “deadly triumvi¬ 
rate” comprised of foreign 
capital, state power, and local 
bosses engineered a land tenure 
revolution that threatened 
smallholders’ subsistence, spark¬ 
ing rebellion among the 
Contestado peasants. 

Unlike most analysts of 
millenarian movements, Diacon 
combines a material analysis 
with a careful exploration of the 
movement’s millenarian ideol¬ 
ogy to demonstrate how a 


particular combination of exter¬ 
nal and internal forces produced 
a crisis of values in the 
Contestado society. Such a 
crisis, Diacon concludes, gave a 
special power to the millenarian 
vision that promised not only 
outward reform, but inner 
salvation as well. 

This work offers a significant 
contribution to the literature of 
millenarian movements, popular 
religion, peasant rebellions, and 
the transition to capitalism in 
Brazil. As such, it will be of great 
interest to historians, anthro¬ 
pologists, sociologists, and 
students of Brazil and Latin 
America in general.

Diplomatic eflForts to resolve the 
Afghanistan crisis began almost 
immediately after the Soviet 
Union’s military intervention in 
that country in December 1979. 
Untying the Afghan Knot offers 
the first detailed analytical ac¬ 
count of the diplomatic process 
set in motion by that interven¬ 
tion and culminating in the 
April 1988 Geneva Accords—a 
milestone in multilateralism and 
UN peacemaking. 


Riaz M. Khan, a senior Pakistani

in all meetings on Afghanistan 
in the United Nations, the 
Non-Aligned Movement, and 
the Organization of the Islamic 
Conference, and in all of the 
Geneva negotiating rounds 
(198Z- 88). Drawing upon his 
personal experience, official 
documents, scholarly literarure, 
and press accounts, he provides a 
unique insider’s view of these 
precedent-setting negotiations, 
which were often shrouded in 
secrecy and misperceptions.

major players—^Afghan govern¬

Military Occupation 
and Diplomacy: 

Soviet Troops in 
Romania, 1944-1958 

Sergiu Verona 

In 1958, after fourteen years of 
military occupation, 

Khrushchev—in an unprec¬ 
edented act—withdrew the 
Soviet Union’s troops from 
Romania as part of a political 
move intended to encourage the 
withdrawal of Western military 
forces from Europe. In analyzing 
this crucial historic episode, 
Sergiu Verona’s comprehensive 
study illustrates the dynamics of 
Soviet military presence in 
Romania and provides a frame¬ 
work for understanding Soviet 
security policy, then and now, as 
well as the interaction between 
Soviet military objectives and 
diplomacy. 

Drawing on recently declassified 
archival material in the United 
States and the United Kingdom, 
the author considers Khrush¬ 
chev’s reversal of Stalinist 
expansionism by examining 
the motivation, function, and 
operation of the initial occu¬ 
pation of Romania; the com¬ 
plex involvement of Soviet 
diplomacy and its perception 
by the United States and 
other Western powers; the 
process by which Khrushchev 
decided to withdraw Soviet 
troops from that country; and 
the impact of this decision on 
Soviet policy. 

Verona extends his analysis to 
the present, providing com¬ 
parisons between Khrush¬ 
chev’s and Gorbachev’s ap¬ 
proaches to Eastern Europe, 
noting that similarities exist 
not only in domestic policies 
but in the realm of foreign 
policy as well. This book fills 


an important gap in the history 
of Soviet and East European 
studies and will be of great 
interest to students and scholars 
alike. 

Sergiu Verona is a Visiting 
Scholar in Soviet Studies at the 
Paul Nitze School of Advanced 
International Studies, Johns 
Hopkins University. He has 
spent most of his adult life in

Invented Truth: 
Soviet Reality and 
the Literary 
imagination of 
lurii Trifonov 

Josephine Woll 

In the “years of stagnation” 
before changed the 

cultural map of the Soviet 
Union, lurii Trifonov 
(1926-1981) defied the rules of 
censorship. In Invented Truth, 
Josephine Woll examines how, 
within the repressive artistic and 
political constraints of the Soviet 
publishing world, Trifonov 
managed not only to write on 
controversial topics such as 
Soviet history, but even to 
achieve and maintain popular 
status in doing so. 

Woll analyzes the aesthetic 
strategies Trifonov deployed in 
order to transmit his ideas and 
opinions to Soviet readers and 
elucidates the major themes of 
his late fiction. Drawing on both 
Western and Soviet scholarship, 
as well as interviews with many 
Soviet and emigre writers, liter¬ 
ary critics, and personal acquain¬ 



tances of Trifonov, Woll pro¬ 
vides detailed background on 
the Soviet literary milieu and the 
rules governing literary produc¬ 
tion and process. She concludes 
with an assessment of the impor¬ 
tance ofTrifonov in relation to 
the current intellectual climate 
of the Soviet Union. 

Specialists in Soviet studies will 
welcome this much-needed 
study on Trifonov as an impor¬ 
tant contribution to general 
literary scholarship. Subtly 
argued and written in clear, 
descriptive language. Invented 
Truth also be of importance 
to the general reader interested 
in Soviet cultural and political 
issues.

Perestroika: 
Perspectives on 
Modernization 

Thomas Lahusen, editor 
Gene Kuperman, translator 


In the introduction to this spe¬ 
cial issue of S/lQon Soviet 
culture, we are told that “what 
seems increasingly certain is the 
breakdown of both the past and 
the future in favor of an advanc¬ 
ing present.” Just what that 
“present” might entail—in 
literature and literary history, in 
cultural theory, in philosophy, 
and in the politics that one way 
or another speaks to all of 
these—is addressed from a 
variety of perspectives by noted 
scholars from both East and 
West. 

Whether the speculative glance 
is back (to czarist Russia, to 
Pushkin, or to the texts pro¬ 
duced during the Zhdanov Era) 
or forward (to the “market 
Stalinism” compellingly pre¬ 
dicted by Boris Kagarlitsky), a 
sense of immediacy, of 
history-in-the-making, informs 
this volume. Essays include 
noted literary historian Mikhail 
Epstein’s exploration of modern 
developments in Soviet literary 
criticism, Valery Podoroga’s 
reflections on the work of 
Andrei Platonov, and novelist 
Mikhail Kuraev’s cautious ex¬ 
citement about changing times. 
Scholars in literary and Slavic 
studies will find this a stimulat¬ 
ing and essential collection, as 
will the general reader interested 
in Soviet cultural movements, 
past, present, and future.

On Internal War: 
American and Soviet 
Approaches to Third 
World Clients and 
Insurgents 

William E. Odom 

William E. Odom combines 
expertise in political science and 
military affairs to challenge both 
conventional and unconven¬ 
tional wisdom about insutgen- 
cies and political development. 
The authot concludes that in all 
three components of U.S. sttat- 
egy fot counterinsurgency— 
political, economic, and mili¬ 
tary—faulty notions of causa¬ 
tion infotm policy. U.S. advice 
to embattled governments fails 
to tecognize the inherent clash 
of development goals; direct 
fiscal aid hurts more often than 
it helps recipient govetnments; 
and the focus of U.S. military 
assistance on fighting insurgents 
plays to their strengths and fails 
to exploit theit weaknesses. 

On Internal War teviews the 
conttasting theory and practice 
in the Soviet and American 
approaches to their competition 
in the Thitd Wotld and telates 
them to indigenous causes of 
internal wars. Odom also inte¬ 
grates the military dimensions of 
insurgencies with extetnal influ¬ 
ences and internal politics. 
Drawing on political develop¬ 
ment theory, he underscores the 
soutces of instability in Third 
World states that make insut- 
gencies more likely and offers 
ways to assess the prospects for 
democracy in specific cases. 

The centerpiece of the study is a 
practical application of the 
author’s analysis to thtee case 
studies—El Salvadot, Guate¬ 
mala, and the Philippines—and 
a regional assessment of the 


Middle East. Odom provides no 
panaceas but suggests that more 
promising strategies can be 
devised. On Internal W^trwill be 
of keen intetest to political 
scientists, and policy and 
opinionmakers alike.

Neill Nugent 

With the impending establish¬ 
ment of a single European 
market in 1992, the importance 
of the European Community 
grows daily. This much-praised 
book offers a timely introduc¬ 
tion to the subject, explaining 
the nature and functioning of 
the Community. Originally 
published in 1989, this new 
edition has been thoroughly 
tevised and updated to reflect 
tecent changes. It has also been 
extended to provide a mote 
substantial considetation of 
decision-making and policy 
implementation, areas in which 
the Community has become 
incteasingly involved. 

Otganized in three main sec¬ 
tions, the fitst patt of the book 


examines the origins and histori¬ 
cal development of the Commu¬ 
nity. The second describes the 
powers, influence, and methods 
of functioning of the principal 
Community institutions and 
political actors. The third re¬ 
views the Community’s policy 
interests and processes.

The Crisis of 
Socialism in Europe 

Christiane Lemke and 
Gary Marks, editors 

The recent revolutions in East¬ 
ern Europe and the recasting of 
socialism in Western Europe 
since 1989 have given rise to 
intense debate over the origins, 
character, and implications of 
the “crisis” of socialism. Is so¬ 
cialism in ideological, electoral, 
or organizational decline? Is the 
decline inevitable or can social¬ 
ism be revitalized? This volume 
draws together historians and 
political scientists of Eastern and 
Western European politics to 
address these questions. 

The collection begins with an 
historical overview of socialism 
in Western Europe and moves 
toward the suggestion of a 
framework for a post-socialist 
discourse. Among the topics 
covered are: the birth and death 
of communism as a regime type 
in Eastern Europe; how different 
forms of national communism 
were smothered by Sovietization 
in the postwar period; the ori¬ 
gins of recent revolutions in 
Eastern Europe; the potential for 
social democracy in Hungary; 
the tole of the Left in a teunified 
Germany; and directions for the 
Left in general. 

The future of socialism is crucial 
to understanding European 
politics. Original and controver¬ 
sial, The Crisis of Socialism in 
Europe v/\\\ be essential reading 
for anyone interested in the 
shaping of the new Europe.

The Dimensions of 
Federalism: State 
Governments and 
Pollution Control 
Policies 

William R. Lowry 


The resurgence of state involve¬ 
ment in policymaking in recent 
years has renewed a 
long-standing debate about the 
most effective role for states 
within a federal system of gov¬ 
ernment. In The Dimensions of 
Federalism, William R. Lowry 
assesses this revitalization and 
examines the responsiveness and 
innovation of state governments 
in the area of pollution control 
policies. 

Lowry argues that the likelihood 
of state governments providing 
leadership in domestic policies is 
determined by two dimensions 
inherent in a federal system: the 
potential for interstate competi¬ 
tion over resources and the 
degree of influence the federal 
government exerts on state 
decisions. Lowry builds upon 
this theoretical framework by 
presenting empirical evidence in 
four major pollution control 
areas: stationary source air pollu¬ 
tion, point source water pollu¬ 
tion, mobile source air pollu¬ 
tion, and nonpoint source water 
pollution. 

Employing a state-of-the-art 
methodological approach com¬ 
bining econometric analysis of 
data on all fifty states with an 
in-depth case study of a leading 
state in each policy area, the 
author concludes that state 
policymakers will often experi¬ 
ment and willingly improve 
upon federal pollution control 
standards. However, the fear of 
losing important constituents to 
interstate competition and the 
difficulty in coordinating efforts 



between states inhibits this spirit 
of innovation. Lowry’s timely 
study will be of great interest to 
students and scholars of Ameri¬ 
can public policy, federalism, 
and environmental politics.

Export Controls 
in Transition: 
Perspectives, 
Problems, and 
Prospects 

Gary K. Bertsch and 
Steven Elliott-Gower, editors 

Like many cold war artifacts, the 
West’s export control policies 
and institutions are being re¬ 


evaluated after the tumult in the 
communist world at the end of 
the 1980s. Policymakers and 
scholars are being forced to 
reexamine the premises of ex¬ 
port control policy and the very 
concept of export controls as a 
tool of national security and 
foreign policy. This volume 
brings together expert scholars 
and government officials who 
provide contrasting perspectives 
and address the problems and 
prospects for export controls. 

The contributors discuss the 
role and function of export 
control policies from a variety of 
perspectives—security, com¬ 
merce, diplomacy, the European 
region, and that of the newly 
industrialized countries. Among 
the topics covered are the prob¬ 
lems the United States and the 
Western export control regime 
will face in the 1990s in light of 
changing international political 
alliances and dependencies, in 
defining strategic exports, in 
enforcing export controls, and 


the future role of the Coordinat¬ 
ing Committee for Multilateral 
Export Controls. 

This book provides vital dis¬ 
course surrounding the search 
for a multilateral export control 
policy that reflects the realities of 
the international political and 
economic environment, and will 
be of great interest to scholars 
and policymakers alike.

Trotskyism, 

1929 - 1985 : 

A Documented 
Analysis of the 
Movement 

Robert]. Alexander 


In a work of encyclopedic scope. 
International Trotskyism, 1929- 
1989 is sure to become the defini¬ 
tive reference work on a move¬ 
ment that has had a significant 
impact on the political culture of 
countries in every part of the 
world for more than half a cen¬ 
tury. 

Renowned scholar Robert j. 
Alexander has amassed, from 
disparate sources, an unprec¬ 
edented amount of primary and 
secondary material to provide a 
documentary history of the 
origins, development, and na¬ 


ture of the Trotskyist movement 
around rhe world. Drawing on 
interviews and correspondence 
with Trotskyists, newspaper 
reports and pamphlets, historical 
writings including the annotated 
writings ofTrotsky in both 
English and French, historical 
memoirs of Trotskyist leaders, 
and documents of the Fourth 
International, Alexander re¬ 
counts the history of the move¬ 
ment since Trotsky’s exile from 
the Soviet Union in 1929. 


Organized alphabetically in a 
double-column, country-by- 
country format—from Albania 
to Bolivia, from China to India, 
from the United States to Viet¬ 
nam—this book charts the 
formation and growth of 
Trotskyism in more than 
sixty-five countries, providing 
biographic information about its 
most influential leaders, detailed 
accounts of Trotsky’s personal 
involvement in the development 
of the movement in each coun¬ 
try, and thorough reports of its

What Makes 
Sound Patterns 
Expressive?: The 
Poetic Mode of 
Speech Perception 

Reuven Tsur 


Poets, academics, and those 
who simply speak a language 
are subject to mysterious intui¬ 
tions about the perceptual 
qualities and emotional symbol¬ 
ism of the sounds of speech. 
Such intuitions are Reuven 
Tsur’s point of departure in this 
investigation into the expressive 
effect of sound patterns, ad¬ 
dressing questions of great 
concern for literary theorists 
and critics as well as for lin¬ 
guists and psychologists. 

Research in recent decades has 
established two distinct types of 
aural perception; a nonspeech 
mode, in which the acoustic 
signals are received in the man¬ 
ner of musical sounds or natural 
noises; and a speech mode, in 
which acoustic signals are ex¬ 
cluded from awareness and only 
an abstract phonetic category is 
perceived. Here, Tsur proposes 
a third type of speech percep¬ 
tion, a poetic mode in which 
some part of the acoustic signal 
becomes accessible, however 
faintly, to consciousness. 

Using Roman Jakobson’s 
model of childhood acquisition 
of the phonological system, 

Tsur shows how the 
nonreferential babbling sounds 
made by infants form a basis for 
aesthetic valuation of language. 
He tests the intersubjective and 
intercultural validity of various 
spatial and tactile metaphors for 
certain sounds. Illustrating his 
insights with reference to par¬ 
ticular literary texts, Tsur con¬ 


siders the relative merits of 
cognitive and psychoanalytic 
approaches to the emotional 
symbolism of speech sounds. 
This interdisciplinary work 
integrates methods of cognitive 
science with traditions of literary 
criticism to address difficult 
questions in linguistics and in 
doing so shows to a diverse 
scholarly audience the relevance 
of great advances in speech 
research. 

Reuven Tsur is Professor in the 
Department of Hebrew Litera¬ 
ture at Tel Aviv University. He 
is also Director of the Katz 
Research Institute for Hebrew 
Literature, Tel Aviv University, 
where he heads the Cognitive 
Poetics Project.

Economics and 
National Security: 

A History of Their 
Interaction 

Craufurd D. Goodwin, editor 

Economics and National Security 
offers the first detailed examina¬ 
tion of the interaction between 
economics and national security 
and explores why the area of 
security studies has long been 
neglected by economists, even 
though defense and wartime 
expenditures regularly consume 
large portions of government 
income. The contributors dem¬ 
onstrate that the history of the 
relationship between economics 
and national security is far richer 
and more fascinating than previ¬ 
ously thought. 

As a point of departure the 
authors begin with the broad 
question of economists’ neglect 
of national security and proceed 
to develop a series of hypotheses 
about why economists disen¬ 
gaged from this important col¬ 
lection of policy-relevant topics. 
The essays examine a number of 
traditions in economics (classi¬ 
cism, neo-classicism, Marxism) 
as well as the ideas of individual 
thinkers (Pareto, Pigou, Veblen, 
Hitler, Rostow). This volume 
will be of interest to specialists in 
the areas of economics, political 
science, history, international 
relations, and international 
security.

Bernhard Eduard 
Fernow: A Story of 
American Forestry 

Andrew Denny Rodgers III 

With a Foreword by R. Max 
Peterson 

In this comprehensive biography 
of the life and career of Bernhard 
Eduard Fernow (1851-1923), the 
first professional forester in 
North America and an organizer 
of the forestry movement, An¬ 
drew Denny Rodgers III reveals 
the history of forestry in North 
America. Originally published in 
1951, this book is being brought 
back into print after twenty-five 
years in honor of the centennial 
of the National Forest system. 

Drawing on unpublished papers 
and voluminous records in 
contemporary forestry journals, 
Rodgers traces Fernow’s life as 
an organizer of the forestry 
movement; as a practicing for¬ 
ester at Slatedale, Pennsylvania; 
as primary architect of the U.S. 
Forest Service; as founding dean 
of the first professional forestry 
school in America at Cornell 
University; as editor of Forestry 
Quarterly, as dean of the faculty 
of forestry at the University of 
Toronto, the first in Canada; 
and as president of the Society of 
American Foresters and the 
Canadian Society of Forest 
Engineers. 


Rodgers shows how Fernow’s 
story mirrors the growth of 
forestry from a popular propa¬ 
ganda movement, emphasizing 
“Woodman Spare That Tree” 
and Arbor Days, to recognition 
of forestry as a science and a 
profession, with branches as 
diverse as silviculture, dendrol¬ 
ogy, forest ecology, and wood 
technology. Many of the leaders 
in early American forestry figure 
prominently in this story and 
are discussed here. This book 
will be of great interest to schol¬ 
ars and students of the history 
of Canadian and U.S. forestry, 
of professions, and of North 
American history in general.

quiet portraits of Edward 
Weston and the profoundly 
revealing pictures of children by 
Helen Levitt. Both are photo¬ 
graphic perceptions of the high¬ 
est order.”—^Ansel Adams

lyricism and grace for which she 
is known.

Hidden Illness in the 
White House 

Kenneth R. Crispell, M.D., 
and Carlos F. Gomez 

“Compelling . . . written in a 
graceful narrative style, with a 
sense of history and with careful 
documentation. The public’s 
right to know and the nation’s 
need for strong and rational 
leadership are equally well served 
by this powerful reminder that 
there must be no more hidden 
illness in the White House.”

Recollections of a Woman 
Physician 

Eva J. Salber 

Foreword by William Bevan 

“The tone of these memoirs is 
one of calm and intelligent 
optimism. From her experience

Solitary Song: An 
Autobiography 

Pauline Koner 

“The whole point about Pauline 
Koner’s career is the very indi¬ 
vidual turn she took into the 
mainstream of American mod¬ 
ern dance. Artistically, she is her 
own ancestor... to trace the 
course of her career is to trace 
the course of an independent 
artist, an individualist, a great 
dancer, and, incidentally, a 
pioneer in dance on televi¬ 
sion.”—Anna Kisselgoff, The
